Hirving Lozano - Signs For SSC Napoli

Recommended Posts

Surprised there's not a thread on him already.

What do you think will happen with him this summer?

Is like to see him stay put for another season, but I imagine without another major tournament to express himself he's probably looking at now as the best time to get a big move.

After a decent World Cup showing I'd expect him to move.

Everton and Barcelona were strongly linked with him before/during.

Not sure if there's any front-runners for him now but he's surely better off leaving PSV now while the proverbial iron is hot.

Having said that, he's only 22. Thought he was older.

I could have sworn there was a thread for him. We were linked initially when Brands joined us as he brought Lozano over from America to PSV last summer, and there was some sort of comment made by Lozano prior to the World Cup to the effect of "I won't be making any decisions before the World Cup but if Marcel Brands wants me to come to Everton we'll definitely have a conversation". Then during the World Cup there were links to at least Barcelona but now it seems to have gone quiet on all fronts. Doesn't even seem to be mutterings from our fan pages or apparent in the knows.

Damn. I was hoping we would have a chance of being involved possibly getting him. Can see him moving to a top-4/6 club though.

Just realised who his agent is. Think that rules us out.

42 million is the rumored figured agree to after the AdL and Lozano's agent Raiola met. The whole transfer will cost Napoli around 91 million (42 me transfer fee, 43me for the wage, and five million for the agent). 

The deal hinges on image right's and the severity of Lozano's injury.

PSV are in the market for a winger as Van Bommel spoke about Ribery, he has been in contact with him but Ribery will be wanting huge sums of money for ages.

PSV have accepted Napoli's offer of 46 million euros, Lozano should be having his medical in the next day or so.

Looks like this one is very close to completion from PSV to Napoli.

Good signing for Napoli but they've been going for higher end players all summer but never managed to land any unfortunately. They have the money on the transfer side of things but the personal terms is the difficulty as many clubs around Europe are finding out, even the biggest clubs. It's a massive investment.

The wages are getting crazy, even crazier than before. China paying insane wages to foreign imports, PSG paid wages directly out of Qatar for players, the Premier League saw nearly all it's teams jettison sensible fiscal policy for crazy wages, while few clubs in Spain can keep up and now Italy has the had to apply tax breaks to help it's teams keep up.

Tangent here but look at the Sanchez deal, United to pay 75% of his wages for two seasons while loaned to Inter because Inter can't afford his insane United salary.

The knock on effect here is that players like Lozano are able to ask for at least 60% more than they would have in the past.

Ancelotti said this some months back and I can't remember which other big football personality said the same things. It's n longer just competing for the high transfer fees, but then the massive personal terms which are crippling even for the biggest clubs. Barça for example spend 70% of their profit revenue on player wages and we're talking about a club that make over £600m clean profit a year, few earn more if any.

It's going to change the nature of CapEx and RevEx at football clubs. If anything I highly suspect that paid membership schemes and contractual arrangements ontop of season tickets will advance beyond there current state to bring more money in. I don't think it will be long before clubs begin 'renting' seats, areas of stadia etc for a steady monthly income.

:x  my boy lozano is moving up. We have such a talented group led by Lozano, Jimenez, and Edson Alvarez... sadly, they chose el tata martino to led them to greatness. 

As for napoli, GREAT move but two years too late... they ruled him out two years ago because of his lack of maturity 🙄🙄 now they payed double.

I agree with that. I think we're also soon going to see the return of individual club tv membership subscriptions which will make the clubs even more money.
